Trend Spotting: Coloured Blazer

Why are blazers in news all of a sudden when they have been a girl’s fashion staple since World War II? 
Well, it seems the designers' world over decided to trade out the basic black/ navy ones for some fun and bold colored blazer. Electric blue, tangy tangerine or neon pink, there is a colour to suit every girl’s flavor.

And the best new is these bold and hue rich blazers can be paired with work wear trouser to GNO sequins dress to party shorts and first date skirts. Thrown on a bright little hot number and go straight form a boardroom onto the party floor. Make sure to pick a colour faltering to your body type and personality and watch as more that a few heads turn your way.

Key to stylishly wearing a Colored Blazer.

1.Ideally, we would first pick our outfit before the outerwear, but in this case we need to first select the blazer before the outfit. The blazer is the statement piece and the ensemble must be built around it.

2.Make sure you are 100% comfortable in your blazer color selection. To make a style statement you have to confidently wear your colour choice.

3.Keep the outfit relatively understated and complementary to the blazer. Preferably pick neutral or pastel colour and delicate prints.
4.Pair it with some stylish accessories and shoes and get set to show-off your colourful side.
